Can Lippert Shocks be Installed on a Trailer Axle that is Mounted on Top of the Leaf Springs


Have a 2017 venture sonic lite 168vrb single axle trailer i want to upgrade with this shock kit, but trailer has an underslung suspension axle on top of leaf springs with u-bolts facing downward. Does lippert make a different shock mounting tie plate part B to accomodate this, or will the plates work upside down?


Expert Reply:

There isn't a different plate for use with axles mounted on top of the leaf spring stack for you to install shock kit # LC281281. But there are other suspension enhancement products available for trailers.

For underslung axles rated for 3,000 to 5,000 pounds you can use SumoSprings # TSS-106-40.
